Eilif was a mighty warrior of Asgard who was blessed by Odin with a magical spear.[2] He assisted Thor in a battle with Fafnir because his spear was one of the only weapons powerful enough to slay a dragon. However, Fafnir knocks Eilif off of his steed and wounds him. He then gets up again and stabs Fafnir with his spear but is shredded in retaliation. Thor promises to avenge him, and using Mjolnir drives the sper lodged in Fafnir's back straight through his heart.[3]

Eilif later joined the Einherjar in his afterlife and continued to serve Asgard.
